cf.set(values, units=None, attr=None, exact=True)[source]

A Query object for a “member of set” condition.

value: sequence

The query condition’s value.

units: str or Units, optional

The units of value. By default, the same units as the operand being tested are assumed, if applicable. If units is specified and value already has units (such as those attached to a Data object), then the pair of units must be equivalent.

attr: str, optional

Apply the condition to the attribute, or nested attributes, of the operand, rather than the operand itself. Nested attributes are specified by separating them with a .. For example, the “month” attribute of the “bounds” attribute is specified as 'bounds.month'.

exact: deprecated at version 3.0.0.

Use re.compile objects in value instead.


The query object.
